Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a senior lecturer in the School of Social Work and Social Policy.  I joined the University after completing a PhD exploring the transition from childhood to adulthood for young people with learning disabilities at the University of Glasgow.  Much of my teaching and research interests focus on the area of adult social care, with a particular interest in learning disability and mental health.

I currently hold the role of Course Leader on the BA (Hons) in Social Work and am committed to ensuring our students have an excellent learning and teaching experience during thier four years on the course.  I also coordinate the service user and carer network in the School in partnership with colleagues at Glasgow Caledonian University.  The network has a remit to influence all aspects of teaching and education across our social work programmes and has involvement in relation to selection, teaching and assessment as well as course monitoring and review.

Research Interests

My research interests lie primarly in the field of adult social care and the bulk of my work involves people with learning disabilities as well as those with mental health problems.  I have particular interests in the areas of citizenship, parenthood and transitions for people with learning disabilities and have completed a number of different research projects in these areas.  I am also interested in the ways in which different kinds of support (both formal and informal) can enable older adults, people with mental health problems and those with learrning disabilities to maintain their independence.  

I also have an interest in evidence based learning and teaching practice within social work and have been involved in a number of programmes that have evaluated social work education including the Department of Health funded evaluation of the social work degree in England and the ESRC funded audit of research teaching across social work programmes in the UK.

I am commited to carrying out inclusive research that has impact both within academia and across policy and practice.
